My IT vendor recommended that I run combofix because he identified some virus from his remote connection to our network. He placed it to our shared drive. I ran it from there. Guess that was a bad thing to do because to problems cropped up:
1. All of my date and time settings switched to a year-month-date style which is not standard American issue. We isse month-date-year. Time changed to a European setting as well, unfamiliar to the American use of two sets of 12 to capture the day with AM and PM. I cannot change anything in the bios and have it stick.
2. After I read how ComboFix should work, I realized it never rebooted my computer and perhaps mine is the 1 of a 100 that will be damaged by the product. I don't know what virus had been identified in the first place, but now when I restart computer, it flashes a message from ComboFix too quickly for me to make out the problem.
